Join Ronnit Vasserman on a virtual road trip across the United States to take a fresh look at how America memorializes historical figures and events.
War memorials honor the times when men and women made the ultimate sacrifice, risking their lives for their love for the country. These sites appeal to family members and friends who wish to commemorate their loved ones' service, as well as to those who wish to pay their respects to the fallen. We will explore the artistic aspects of these larger-than-life landmarks. Some of the memorials include the Vietnam Veterans Memorial, USS Arizona Memorial, the Korean War Veteran’s Memorial, and the National September 11 Memorial.
We will also look at contemporary artist Kehinde Wiley’s Rumors of War sculpture, which grapples with the question of the removal of confederate statues, markers and other monuments that celebrate controversial Civil War era figures from public grounds.
